BRUSLY, LA (NBC33) — The bell rang this morning at Brusly High for the first day of school, but it was missing beloved French and Spanish teacher, Sylviane Lozada.
Students wore yellow ribbons in honor of Lozada. Also, we're told the kids and faculty started the day with a moment of silence for their teacher, who has been missing since July 5, 2011. Principal Walt Lemoine says his students and staff love Lozada and emotions have been running high today.
"You could hear the lights buzzing in the gym, and there were five hundred kids in there, and you could just feel that they knew the seriousness of it," Lemoine explained.
Law enforcement say they do suspect foul play in Loazada's disappearance. As of now they do not have a suspect, but East Baton Rouge Deputies say the teacher's husband left the country with their 5-year-old daughter shortly after her disappearance.
